SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. –Jefferson Security Bank President and CEO Cindy Kitner recently announced the promotion of Jenna Kesecker to senior vice president and chief financial officer. Kesecker, who is a certified public accountant, joined the bank in 2005 and previously served as the vice president and risk manager.
“We are excited to see Jenna advance within our organization,” Kitner said. “Her attention to detail, strong analytical skills and commitment to the bank have been extremely helpful in our mission to respond to the needs of our customers and our community.”
Kesecker started working as a part-time teller at Jefferson Security Bank while attending Shepherd University. After graduating in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration, she started working full time in the bank’s finance department. She was then named vice president and risk manager in 2012—the same year she earned her West Virginia CPA license. In her role as vice president and risk manager, Kesecker continued to be actively involved in the finance department while her responsibilities expanded to cover all areas of the bank and allowed her to work closely with executive management. She specifically managed or assisted with enterprise-wide risk assessment and management, vendor management, investment portfolio analysis and various special projects.
In Kesecker’s new role as senior vice president and CFO for Jefferson Security Bank, she is responsible for the overall financial management of the bank. Kesecker will continue to monitor risk for all areas of the bank, as she also serves as the bank’s risk management officer and information security officer.
